Chadwick Top Moments: No. 30

Ridaoui_Mohamed_action.jpgWith the numerous outstanding team achievements that Coach Billy Chadwick has orchestrated, there have also been many individuals who have thrived under his guidance.  For No. 30 in our countdown, we highlight one of those individuals in Mohamed Ridaoui.

Ridaoui changed the Rebels 1992 season from the outset. He blasted into the national spotlight as he claimed the 1991 National Intercollegiate Clay Court Championships, earning the program's first ever Grand Slam victory. It was a remarkable accomplishment as he defeated the No. 1-ranked player in the country and defending champion Patricio Arnold of South Florida 6-1, 7-5 in the semifinals and No. 4 ranked Jose Luis Noriega of San Diego 6-4, 6-4 in the title match.

Ridaoui's outstanding play continued into the spring.  The Morocco native earned All-America and All-SEC honors.  Ridaoui represented Ole Miss in all four collegiate grand slam events including the NCAA Championships.

We will return Wednesday with another milestone reached by Billy Chadwick and the Ole Miss men's tennis team.
